Jane Austen and the Question of Women's Education.

SKU: 17252

Horwitz explores how Austen reflects and reacts to contemporary views of women's education, often comparing Austen's views to Locke, and to other writers like Hannah More, Jane West, Mary Wollstonecraft, Clara Reeve, and others Austen might have read or known about. Horwitz argues that reading the works of the time that dealt with women's education in various ways deepens our understanding of Austen's achievement, and that no other woman writer of her time asserted men admired intelligent women.
